Salt and Pepper Chicken Wings

It’s takeaway night and the first thing that pops into my head is salt and pepper chicken wings. Honestly, my choice for Chinese takeaway is not much. I would only eat anything with prawn, rice, chips and salt and pepper chicken wings. These salt and pepper chicken wings are full of flavours and would your takeaway a run for their money
